Classic Marinated Chicken Thighs

Keep it simple. That's what this recipe is all about. Gather your favorite Head Country ingredients—your favorite of our Seasonings, your favorite flavor of sauce, and a bottle of our Marinade—and you're already halfway to dinnertime. Pair with your favorite BBQ sides (we love them with sautéed sweet peppers and roasted potatoes).

BBQ Basics

Cooking Instructions

Shake marinade well before use.

Use up to a cup of marinade to coat chicken thighs. Add thighs to marinate for 45 minutes. Remove chicken thighs from marinade and dust lightly with Head Country Original Championship Seasoning.

Smoke at 275 for 45 minutes. You can also grill these chicken thighs on at 325 for 4-5 minutes per side. Try baking them at 425 for 4-5 minutes per side.

Serve with your favorite BBQ sides. Enjoy!

Pull chicken thighs off the smoker and brush on Head Country Apple Habanero BBQ sauce. Add thighs back to the smoker for another 5 minutes to allow the sauce to thicken to a glaze.
